    Picked up this girl from the mystery bin at Meyer Hatchery. Not sure what she is and I'd like some help ID her.

    I hate to say it...But...You probably have to wait until it is 2 or 3 weeks.
    My only guess is a Black Australorp. Good luck!

    Is it just me, or does the chick have a beard/muffs? Can you tell what kind of a comb it has ?

    I agree with kana9. I got 4 Partridge Rocks in March from Meyer. Mine were the smallest of the 3 kinds I got (Australorps & EEs), but now at 8 weeks they are a nice size. Such a cute chick!
